Adding delish fuel to Fatfire


Flying High Buffalo Wings.

Stepping into FatFire in LaLaport Bukit Bintang City Centre, Kuala Lumpur, is like entering a vibrant imaginary world, thanks to the colourful interior dominated by a brightly hued mural depicting The Three Witches of Mardi Gras. The striking hand-painted work of art, encompassing mystical fire butterflies and gecko motifs, symbolises the restaurant’s transformative adaptability.

The word “fat” in FatFire KL embodies feast, fun and fulfilment, promising a dining experience to satiate both the stomach and the soul.

At this all-American diner, each dish aims to capture the essence of Creole and Cajun flavours.

Our lunch began on a high note as we took advantage of the restaurant’s refreshing offer of any three classic cocktails for RM70. A steal indeed, and even at RM24.90 each, the individual cocktails are still reasonably priced.

The first thirst-quencher was Sangria, a delightful mix of brandy, rum, red wine, and fruits whilst the mug of Moscow Mule comprised vodka, lime juice, and ginger ale. However, it was the Cosmopolitan that won our dining party’s unanimous approval thanks to the pleasing concoction of vodka, cranberry juice, triple sec, and lime juice.

Fuelling our appetite from the get-go was Talapia Popcorn (RM27). Lightly coated in spiced batter, the bite-size pieces of fish were golden-fried to perfection. Dipped in Cajun mayo and remoulade sauce, the moreish morsels were irresistibly addictive.

Another worthy appetiser to hit the spot was Mississippi Fried Calamari (RM32), featuring lightly breaded, deep-fried squid rings marinated in Cajun spices.

Our taste buds were set ablaze by Flyin’ High Buffalo Wings (RM28), delectable grilled chicken wings that packed quite a punch due to a coating of fiery hot sauce. To cool things down, we turned to Prawn-tastic Tacos (RM30). Heaped with mango salsa, diced avocados, shredded red cabbage, and spiced tiger prawns, the tasty tacos offered a refreshing counterpoint. There was mildly spicy slaw and guacamole served on the side.

Coated in piquantly spiced batter, the signature Catfish & Chips (RM37) easily reeled us in. Top marks for the choice of tender soft fish which had a nice delicate sweetness to it. Accompaniments of apple slaw, salad and creamy remoulade sauce provided additional textural and flavour notes.

I’d never say no to a well-made burger and Mary’s Not So Little Lamb (RM37) turned out to be a real showstopper. Sandwiched between a toasted burger bun, the juicy grilled lamb patty was utterly scrumptious. Caramelised onion, fresh lettuce, tomato, grilled pineapple and melted cheese ramped up the flavour quotient. Personally, I feel this burger is a gem worth returning for.

Onions, bell peppers and celery − staples of Creole cooking − along with tomatoes, were transformed into a rich jambalaya sauce for the FatFire Jambalicious Pasta (RM37). Tender grilled chicken, sliced sausage and capsicum strips nestled among the spaghetti made this a crowd-pleasing dish.

Key Lime Pie (RM18) and New Orleans Beignets (RM18) brought the curtains down to our meal. The pie, with its graham cracker crust and zesty, creamy filling, perked us up with its citrusy taste.

Dusted with icing sugar and served with chocolate sauce, the golden fried dough pillows known as beignets, capped off our All-American diner experience.

FatFire truly lives up to its name, delivering a feast to satisfy both the palate and spirit.
